Ascent Trip Report

Unfortunately the road to the usual trailhead was closed, making this a much longer hike. Also, snow and ice made the final approach up the ridge look too difficult, so we tried a cross-country route which ended up being drier but much harder. Our party got divided, and one person was delayed enough that we went down a few hundred feet to see if we could help. This accounts for much of the extra gain and distance included in my ascent numbers- the descent is what it should have been (I did not include that time in my ascent time, however).
